A man who admitted killing three members of a Darien family will be sentenced Aug. 13, a judge said Tuesday.
The hearing for 26-year-old Jacob Nodarse is set to take place about a month after sentencing for co-defendant Johnny Borizov, who was convicted by a DuPage County jury in May.

Nodarse, formerly of Countryside, faces 45 years to life in prison under an agreement with prosecutors, while Borizov faces a mandatory life term.
Both men were convicted in the March 2010 murders of Jeffrey and Lori Kramer and their 20-year-old son Mike, but Nodarse could receive a lighter sentence because he pleaded guilty but mentally ill and testified against Borizov.
Nodarse said he shot the Kramers at Borizov's behest after breaking into their home through a window. Prosecutors said Borizov wanted the family dead because of a child-custody dispute with Jeffrey and Lori Kramer's daughter, who survived the rampage by hiding in a closet.
Borizov, 31, of Willow Springs, is scheduled for sentencing July 15. Judge Daniel Guerin is presiding over both cases.
